    flawless tv series

    |
    Posted .

    This is by far my favorite series I have ever seen next to game of thrones. I am very sad it was only 3 seasons, I feel like it had SO much more potential for other seasons. The extra bonus footage is very interesting, and as with all bluray, picture quality is amazing. I would recommend bluray over dvd purely because this is a very dark show, lots of shadows and night. To me, dvd quality just doesn't cut it. It always seems lacking in the depth of the blacks and shadows, kind if blurring when it shouldn't be. If that makes sense, I'm weird and picky though.

    There's Nothing Like Penny Dreadful Out There

    |
    Posted .

    Penny Dreadful is perhaps one of the most well crafted TV show in decades. Gothic and alluring, the show has the ability to suck you in like blackholes swallow light and well...everything else. The storylines are magnetic, the acting is superb; especially that of Eva Green, and the cinematography is simply impeccable. Nothing is wasted in the world of Miss Vanessa Ives, as she faces the monsters and demons that throughout centuries have collectively terrify us and made us fear the dark. Miss Ives relishes in the light, but cannot resist the darkness that haunts her relentlessly and unequivocally. The gallery of characters that accompany or antagonize Vanessa, are as equally charming, provocative, and mysterious as our heroine is. There has never been anything like Penny Dreadful before, and never will again because the fabric which it is made of (beauty, sadness, heart, pain, and darkness) is a rare combination hardly anyone can master. An absolutely great cast and an outstanding John Logan make Penny worth every dollar you'll spend buying it.

    There's just something about Penny Dreadful

    |
    Posted .

    There's just something about Penny Dreadful that makes me want to elevate my language into the more poetic, elegant English of Victorian literature: Aye, gorblimey guvnuh that Eva Green is a right brilliant totty, cheers jolly good. Just kidding, I don't know what any of that means, I can barely speak American let alone anything approaching the frequently next-level vocabulary of Penny Dreadful. Regardless, no discussion about this instant classic series can start anywhere other than how amazing Eva Green is. Eva Green is perfect basically. Her intense, frightening, eerily cool, tour-de-force performance was the centerpiece of Penny Dreadful and is what held together an otherwise unwieldy monster like the tightest of stitches. I'm not saying we should give Eva Green all of the awards for her work here, but if she doesn't win them then awards are MEANINGLESS.

    Great characters!

    Penny Dreadful has been a very entertaining show. The main characters are well defined and the plot is strong, even though it revolves around a vampire hunt. I'll miss the show, though I did see what could be some foreshadowing for a continuation with a few of the more peripheral characters. I hope I'm right!

    Dark season with a peaceful end.

    Excellent series with some incredible acting by Eva Green and the rest of the cast. Her character as Vanessa Ives with supernatural gifts are powerful and useful to those around her, but they are also a heavy burden. Her inner demons may be more real than emotional as they threaten to destroy her relationships, her sanity and her very life. A difficult and intense role which she portrayed very well.

    Everything was great in this season except the final outcome, the people in charge of this series should be utterly ashamed of themselves for destroying a great series, they really dropped the ball on this one, all the stars that gave there all and worked so hard deserved better. Great series gone too soon.

    I'm a big fan of the penny dreadful series, so when the season 3 abruptly ended i, was highly disappointed.there was so much potential for the characters 2 evolve. hopefully just maybe the writers will surprise us with another season. This is worth the purchase if you are a die hard fan. I'm loving the cover

    Not any characters name but based on a magazine published in the mid 1800's. A great dramatic & horrifying series utilizing various famous horror characters from different sources & authors & weaving them into this series together . Eva Green should win an Emmy for her part in this truly great series.

    Great Series Finale

    this series finale is packed full of suspense and action. The costuming, sets and location shots are visually stunning. Well acted by an ensemble cast. Each episode keeps you in suspense until the climatic end. A nice addition to any film library.

    One of the best series in years. Not for every one but if you like a completely new twist to an old story this show has some of the best characters, best acting and the best special effects out there. What a shame the show ended.

    The moment I heard about the show I was hooked! If your interested in Dracula, The League of extraordinary gentlemen or penny dreadfuls then you'll love this show. Eva Green is amazing as the character Vanessa Ives.

    So sad that this is the final season. This series had been the best horror series on T.V. period. The acting of Eva Green is superb, the sets and story is like watching a mini movie. AMAZING series!!!!!!!!!!

    Excellent Series, but bland finale

    I loved this series, but I must have been in the minority, as they cancelled it as of this season. It is too bad, as they did a lot of minor plot development this season which was all for naught in the rushed ending.

    What became an elegant trilogy instead of a long-running series, is poignantly wrapped up in this engaging and beautiful final series Special notice of Eva Green's excellent acting

    This is a series which is not for everyone. It is an acquired taste, but if you enjoy classic horror (subtle story telling - not just gore) you will likely enjoy this series. I would recommend this to a friend, if that friend were a fan of the horror genre.

    Why end it?

    Absolutely surprising to end it now. This could have gone on for a few seasons more. Killing off Vanessa should not be the end as other characters can continue going on.

    Some of the best interpretations of classic Horror entities that I've experienced. Angry that Showtime decided to end it after only 3 seasons.
